"We Are Our Mountains" (Armenian: Մենք ենք մեր լեռները) is a large Armenian monument located in Stepanakert, the capital city of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. The sculpture, completed in 1967 by Sargis Baghdasaryan, is widely regarded as a symbol of Nagorno-Karabakh. The monument is made from volcanic tufa, and depicts an old man and woman hewn from rock, representing the mountain people of Karabakh. It is also known as "Tatik u Papik" (Տատիկ ու Պապիկ) in Western Armenian and "Mamig yev Babig" (Մամիկ եւ Պապիկ) in Eastern Armenian, and it's translated as "Grandma and Grandpa". The sculpture is featured prominently on Nagorno-Karabakh's coat of arms.
